Homemade Fish and Chips Recipe

April 19th, 2011 at 06:46 pm

So we just had the most delicious fish and chips for dinner tonight. I'm not sure it's the most economical of recipes, depending on how expensive the fish is that you buy, but in comparison to store bought or restaurant bought it is quite a savings. I made enough to feed five people for $10 so not too shabby.

The fish counter had Dover Sole on sale for $3.99 a pound today. Up until a month ago I had never had that before, but what with the price of cod and snapper rivaling the cost of salmon lately I was looking at it more seriously. Then Mom bought a piece and we all tried it and it was great. So I decided to try my fish and chips recipe with it and it was so good, I think it was better than with Cod.

Cook time may vary depending on how hot your oil is.

One pound of dover sole (or cod, snapper, haddock, or pollock)
2 cups flour
2 to 3 eggs
2 cups panko bread crumbs
1 TBSP water
1 TBSP corn starch
1 TSP salt
1/4 TSP pepper
Canola oil for frying

Cut sole into 8 to 10 pieces
Mix flour, corn starch and salt and pepper in one bowl. Mix 2 eggs and water (you may need the third egg depending on egg size of eggs) in another bowl. In third bowl put panko bread crumbs. Dip fish in flour mixture, then egg mixture. Allow egg to drip off so it doesn't get gummy. Dip in panko.

Fry in hot oil (350 degrees or so) for 2 to 4 minutes, until breading is crispy and fish is cooked through.

Chips:

Peel two pounds of potatoes and cut into wedges (the size of steak fries). Fry in hot oil (350 degrees) for 4 to 6 minutes. Test for doneness. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.

    Yummy, though the steak fries are great tossed with olive oil and baked with spicy paprika, garlic powder and whatever you might experiment with.

    I've made them with taco seasonings and with chili powder and cumin before, too, but that's only when I'm baking them, not frying them.
